Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre
Still an excellent property . . .
This is the second convention that I have attended at this hotel and it would be safe to say that they do conventions very well! Our own group of 140+ was checking in as they were checking out over 600 guests from a convention that was just finishing. They had accommodated the outgoing convention by erecting an enormous heated tent in the back parking lot and as fast as it went up, it disappeared. I was told that it very comfortably fitted the 600+ guests. As we all know, working conventions has more to do with getting a good night’s sleep than anything else and the rooms in this property are very, very quiet! Walking down the hallways, you could hear the clatter of guests in their rooms but when your room door clicked shut behind you, there was total silence. I had a great view of the mountains but I doubt there is a room that does not boast the same great views. This property is in the Canadian Rockies after all! The catering department was on top of everything and they made serving our conventioneers look like a breeze in the afternoon wind. The food was tasty, hot and very well prepared. Cleanup afterwards was miraculously quiet as we settled down in one of their several large convention rooms for more work. The bed was ultra comfy and the room came with my requisite sitting chair and ottoman for a quick late night read. The bathroom was on the small side but very clean and the shower head was perfect. Nothing that a few more minutes in the shower would not cure! From the moment that Jenna happily checked me in, to the moment that I checked out two days later, I felt like a very welcomed guest. Okay, the glow of a fireplace is always especially welcoming in the mountains when you come back from an evening of exploring on what I would suggest was a brisk evening. But then I suspect more than a few romances have started in this beautiful hotel lobby, such is the power of the Canadian Rockies. I will be back again next year.
needs a facelift
The Coast in Canmore has friendly staff members but could use a facelift. I was there during a convention and was barley in my room but it is dated. It could definitely use more charm, like the surrounding lodges. Location is convenient and it is fantastic that you don’t pay for parking. My dog was also welcomed nicely. It is ok if you only have a short stay.
You get what you pay for
Don’t expect anything above and beyond.
Food was average or below. Staff are genuine and friendly. Rooms were not cleaned to standards that would be basic for me to live in, let alone travel too.
Would not return as there are several options in the vicinty of this hotel that are far superior for similar costs
Hotel staff were great! Original room had been smoked in and they promptly gave me a new room. Convenient location but hotel needs some minor upgrades but overall I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Great place to stay with pets
We stayed here with our little dog…..we were placed on the bottom floor for easy access when taking our dog out. We had patio doors and could just open our door and go out instead of walking through the lobby with our dog ( even though they did not mind that at all,). Our beds were so comfortable! We even had a fridge and microwave in our room! That was an added bonus for sure! A bit disappointed that the hot tub was closed, but I guess it has to close some time for maintenance. Found it a bit odd that we had to leave the hotel and walk outside to the building with the pool in it. All in all I would DEFINATELY recommend this hotel, especially if you have pets!!
